President Joe Biden faced a swath of criticism from a number of Sunday morning shows, with various hosts and pundits admitting he was having “a tough time” while highlighting his administration’s recent setbacks.
Biden notably encountered a back-to-back wave of impediments to his agenda last Friday as the Pentagon announced that one of its recent drone strikes in Afghanistan had killed seven children and no terrorists, an FDA panel voted not to recommend coronavirus vaccine booster shots to vaccinated people over the age of 16, something Biden had been promoting, and France recalled its ambassador to the U.S. after being left out of a nuclear submarine deal between the U.S., U.K. and Australia.
NBC’s “Sunday Today” host, Willie Geist, began the waves of criticism by questioning how the White House was handling its myriad problems during a discussion with fellow NBC host Chuck Todd.
“I think he’s got a pretty big credibility crisis on his hands because all of these problems, in some ways, showed up after he said something basically the exact opposite,” Todd told Geist, citing the Afghanistan withdrawal, the coronavirus vaccine booster decision and the crisis at the southern border.

You know the nation is in trouble, when the networks that have been running cover for Biden leading up to his election until the present, are turning on him. This last line in the article, to me, was a telling sign of the shift in the direction in the U.S. media outlets. It was an attempt to cover Biden’s disastrous withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan and an unsuccessful attempt to gun down terrorist with a drone. No terrorist went down in the mission, only innocent civilians. I am told that 7 of the ten were children. Here is what AP reporter had to say about it all:
Some in the media took a different approach to analyzing the Biden administration’s setbacks, including Associated Press reporter Jonathan Lemire, who was mocked for describing the administration’s impediments as “uncontrollable events.”
The fact that other reporters mocked him shows the tide is turning.
It is time we hear some real admission of failure from the Biden Admin, not just the Pentagon, and real apologies. Thank God, Bernie Sanders is speaking out against the most recent failed mission killing innocent children, calling it “unacceptable.”
Please pray for our leaders:
I urge you, first of all, to pray for all people. Ask God to help them; intercede on their behalf, and give thanks for them. 2 Pray this way for kings and all who are in authority so that we can live peaceful and quiet lives marked by godliness and dignity. 1 Tim. 2:1-2 NLT
